» Dumb strongman question (Go to post)29-02-2012 @ 00:55 
I'm not a beast by any means, I can barely do a few reps with a 40kg dumbell. i was just wondering. I did some standing dumbell presses with leg drive and can't get the second dip. Snatching a 40kg dumbell whilst fresh seemed MUCH easier than doing it after a few other shoulder exercises but with as much leg drive as poss.

When doing a dumbell clean and press, am I allowed to snatch the dumbell from floor straight to overhead? Or, as the name implies, do i have to get it on my shoulders first?

Cottage cheese is casein, very slow digesting. If he's mixing casein in with the yoghurt, then it'll work. Whey would give the opposite effect to what cottage cheese is for - it breaks down too quickly and the aminos exit the bloodstream within 30 odd minutes.

Depends on the individual I reckon. It suits me better than a barbell. I feel like I can actually get some drive into it, plus there's no sticking point.
I'm always scared of my back "going" when pulling a heavy weight off the floor. It stops me pulling with 100% effort.

Yet you pulled this without a belt. Nice lifting.

Never do box jumps with dumbells in your rucksack. Stitches to my head, not quite as big a gash as yours though.

Could have just been a lady.

On the plus side, good thing nobody was in the front room when this happened or could have been much worse.

First vid - 1:14ish it looks like there's a small skip in the frames, where the mice can be swapped for chocolate milk...

Wide stance suits help with sumo deadlifts. If it's too hard to get down, lean to one side to get a grip, then pull yourself down to get the other hand on the bar. Try a session in it, see how you get on.
» How much oats is TOO much? (Go to post)17-02-2012 @ 01:26 
Finding it easy to have 200g oats plus 25g whey protein, plus 200ml milk and 300ml water, macros are about 130gcarbs, 40-50g protein and with 10ml olive oil about 30g fats, for around 1,000kcals. Get a bit gassy but I find it easy to get more overall kcals this way. Is this TOO much? I might have another 150g another time with just water to get more carbs in, so 350g oats in one day. Is this TOO much or should I focus more on getting 4 solid meals in per day, plus one shake with 150g oats?

Chalk, easy to eat food (crisps, peanuts) and drinks.
» Just done some reading on avocados (help with bulking), interesting stuff (Go to post)11-02-2012 @ 20:50 
Fancied avocados so got 3 for a pound near work. Just did some reading and found out just how many kcals in each one.

Per avocado
Calories 322
Fat 29.5g
Cholestrol 0mg
Carbs 17g
Fibre 13.5g

Highest in the fruits and veg for a whole heap of vitamins and minerals, VERY easy to eat and when you mix 2 with olive oil and lemon juice, you're looking at 700kcals of healthy fats. Could be good to do 5 or 6 of them and have a big spoon with each meal.

Anyone else rate them?
